Archive for the ‘Layered Taco Dip’ Category

My hubby and I decided that we are going to try a new appetizer, hor devours or snack each Sunday during football.  We love trying new things and football games are a great excuse to have those fun little snacks you may not normally have.  We missed the first two weeks because we weren’t at home but we made one last week and this week.  I’ll post week one’s here and create a separate post for week 2 and each week to follow from here ’til the end of football season (unless of course we happen to not be at home again).

Our first week’s appetizer wasn’t so new but we’ve been hungry for it so decided to make…

Layered Taco Dip:

I think everyone’s had this chip dip before but if you haven’t you are about to find a new snack that will delight you taste buds!  I don’t make this very often because when I do I eat waaaay too much.


8 oz cream cheese

16 oz sour cream

2 packets taco seasoning

1 lb ground beef

lettuce, tomato and whatever other veggies you like on tacos

grated cheese

salsa (optional)


Brown your meat and add 1 packet of taco seasoning, cook according to directions on packet.  While meat is cooling cream together the cream cheese and sour cream.  Add the other packet of taco seasoning until well blended.

Dice lettuce, tomatoes and other vegetables you’d like to go on your layered taco dip.

On a cookie sheet or large serving platter evenly spread the cream cheese mixture.  Add the taco meat on top of this then layer your vegetables on top of this.  I start with lettuce, then tomato, etc. ending with salsa before adding the grated cheese as my last layer.

Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
